About This PhD Project

Project Description

To accurately incorporate active galactic nuclei (AGN) into galaxy evolution models it is important to understand how and when AGN are triggered as their their host galaxies grow via gas accretion, and also whether the triggering mechanism depends on the luminosity of the AGN. This observational project will involve using deep imaging and spectroscopy observations of samples of nearby AGN to thoroughly investigate AGN triggering mechanisms.
